The City of Beavercreek Police Department will continually accept applications for police officer. After an applicant has passed the initial pre-screening phase, he/she must obtain a minimum score of 70% on the written test in order to be scheduled for the remaining steps in the process.
See the process below for testing requirements depending on your certification status.
All applicants who are not certified in the State of Ohio or certified applicants who have less than one year of service as a full-time law enforcement officer must successfully complete a written test through the National Testing Network, Inc. (minimum score of 70%.) All Applicants will be ranked based on their final combined score using the Video and PSSA components of the exam. To schedule a test, go to www.nationaltestingnetwork.com, select Law Enforcement and sign-up for the Beavercreek Police Department. All applicants who take the test will be notified of their individual results. Applicants obtaining the minimum required score will be scheduled for the Physical Fitness Test.
Physical Fitness Test
Only Non-Certified applicants must successfully complete a physical fitness assessment. The time and location for the physical fitness assessment will be provided after the application and written test phases have been completed. Applicants will be required to sign a waiver in order to participate in the fitness assessment. Testing will consist of push-ups, sit-ups, and a 1.5 mile as required by the Ohio Peace Officer Training Commission. Passing benchmarks will be the 30% level of the Cooper Standards based on the applicant’s age and sex. This test will be pass/fail and does not contribute to the overall ranking list.
Applicants who are certified in the State of Ohio with more than one year of service as a full-time law enforcement officer (must not have been out of active law enforcement status for more than two years) are not required to complete the written test or physical fitness assessment to be considered for employment. These applicants will immediately proceed to the structured interview board.
